First Victims of Netflix Central Park Five Agitprop

Historical accuracy isn’t the only victim of the appalling Netflix series When They See Us, which presents a fictional version of the Central Park Five rape case in which the rapists are oppressed angels and the prosecutors are the villains.

Inspired by this toxic example of agenda-driven historical revisionism, social justice warriors are out for blood. Unsurprisingly, they also want to release other violent criminals.

For the most part, the Manhattan District Attorney has been standing against this moonbattery in defense of justice and sanity:

D.A. Cyrus Vance has shot down a request from Public Advocate Jumaane Williams to reopen thousands of cases prosecuted by his office’s sex crime unit between 1976 and 2002.

He also refused Williams’ request to fire Elizabeth Lederer, a veteran assistant D.A. who worked on the Central Park Five case…

Williams and [Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem, the Legal Aid Society, and the New York County Defender Services] last week asked Vance to review all the cases handled by Lederer and former assistant D.A. Linda Fairstein. Lederer was the lead prosecutor in the Central Park Five case, and Feinstein was head of the Manhattan D.A.’s Sex Crimes Unit.

Both are demonized as oppressing the put-upon Central Park Five in the Netflix series that Fairstein describes as “so full of distortions and falsehoods as to be an outright fabrication.”

Just in case anyone doesn’t get it that this is about race politics, not justice, the SJWs spell it out:

The letter from the three lawyers’ groups told Vance “[i]t is imperative that you investigate every case that has been led by Ms. Fairstein and Ms. Lederer to ensure that your office is not responsible for even one more innocent black or brown life sitting in prison today.”

Even Vance plays along with the politically required charade that the wilding youth who took part in the brutal rape of Trisha Meili that nearly killed her are somehow victims of injustice because they had to cool their heels in prison for a few years before collecting a $40+ million payoff from the odious Bill de Blasio.

The Netflix series has already inflicted damage at the personal level:

Dogged by bad publicity resulting from the series, Fairstein resigned from her positions on the board of trustees at Vassar College and on the boards God’s Love We Deliver and Safe Horizon, two nonprofits.

Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Books, dropped Fairstein after publishing her best-selling crime novels.

That’s her reward for racially incorrectly attempting to bring vicious thugs to justice.

Lederer, who has continued her career at the D.A.’s office, resigned as a part-time lecturer at Columbia Law School after a group of black students called on her to quit.

Ava DuVernay, who created the series, can congratulate herself on the damage done.

Fairstein and Lederer will not be the last people harmed by Netflix’s leftist agitprop. As Cultural Marxism (or “liberalism” as we are asked to call it) and the cowardice that causes otherwise decent people to play along with it destroy all semblance of order and justice, more Fairsteins and Lederers will be sacrificed to political correctness. There will be more Trisha Meilis too.
